LSC-Tom­ball Vet­eri­nary Tech­nol­ogy Pro­gram Re­ceives Recog­ni­tion for Work

Public News (Houston) - - PUBLIC NEWS #38 -

Lone Star Col­lege-Tom­ball stu­dents were rec­og­nized on Jan. 26 when Lone Star Col­lege hosted the Charley Wootan Grant Re­cep­tion at LSC-Univer­sity Park to honor and rec­og­nize the Wootan grant re­cip­i­ents sys­tem-wide.

The Charley Wootan Grant Pro­gram pro­vides post-sec­ondary schol­ar­ships to stu­dents with fi­nan­cial need. Since 2000, the pro­gram has awarded more than $30 mil­lion to stu­dents in Texas and across the na­tion. Lone Star Col­lege re­ceived $100,000 to award 20 stu­dent schol­ar­ships over a two-year pe­riod. LSC-Tom­ball is one of the three Lone Star Col­lege cam­puses that par­tic­i­pated in the pro­gram along with LSC-Cy-Fair and LSC-Univer­sity Park.

The grant is named for Dr. Charley V. Wootan, for­mer chair­per­son of the board for TG, a non-profit ded­i­cated to pair­ing stu­dents with re­sources that al­low them to reach their ed­u­ca­tional goals.

While many stu­dents were rec­om­mended and/or ap­plied for the grant, only a hand­ful qual­i­fied be­cause of the strin­gent cri­te­ria, the aca­demic achieve­ment re­quire­ments, and com­mit­ment in­volved. The LSC-Tom­ball re­cip­i­ents of the Charley Wootan Grant were: Angely Al­varez, Isai An­gelina, Van­nessa Araniva, Clau­dia La­guna, Ana Du­ran, Cyn­thia Romero, Maria Gon­za­lez-Trevino, Dereje Mikell, Ed­win Her­nan­dez, Guadalupe Sanchez, and Jen­nifer Swan­son.
